Still got apples?
And what’s worse is that Noah will NOT eat an unpeeled apple – in fact, none of my kids would “eat the peels” when they were little.
Which results in a lot of discarded peels. So you could imagine my delight upon discovering this genius use of apple peels – from Martha (of course)!
Crunchy, slightly sweet and in the oven in under 5 minutes, I’m in love with this snack idea. Even better – so is Noah. I’ve always known about the nutrients contained within the apple peels and I’m thrilled to have found a way to get Noah to eat them.
These treats start to lose their crispness in a day or two, so it’s best to consume them right away.
Which I assure you, will not be a problem.
from Martha Stewart Living
Peels from 4 apples (here’s a great trick for keeping those peeled apples from turning brown till you’re ready to use!)
1 T. sugar, tossed with 1/4 t. cinnamon
Pre-heat oven to 250; line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the peels in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with a little water and toss with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Spread peels in a single layer on your prepared baking sheet (making sure they’re not overlapping) and bake for 2 1/2 hours. Let cool before serving.
Note: You can adjust this recipe up or down based on the number of apples you have. If using more than one baking sheet, rotate the sheets halfway through the baking time.
